Connor MU’s participation in the nine-mile charity walk was organised for the fourth consecutive year by vice chairman Kathleen Rodgers.

Joining her were Loraine Watt from Ballymena and Connor Diocesan President Moira Thom from Lisburn. The MU walkers were raising funds for the MU Relief Fund which will be used specifically for emergencies and disasters such as war, famine and flood.

Also taking part on Bank Holiday Monday were the Rt Rev Alan Abernethy, his wife Liz, the Rev Robin Moore, rector of St Mark’s, Ballysillan, and the Rev Canon Neil Cutcliffe, veteran of Christian Aid’s Cut the Carbon March.

The clergy were raising money for Connor’s Yei School Project, which is building a much-needed rural school in Connor’s link diocese of Yei, southern Sudan.
